Become a Virtual Flyer with Wings for Wii


The Nintendo Wii has had its share of wacky accessories but the soon to be launched wings for Wii are plain crazy.

I have to say I’m not the biggest fan of Nintendo’s wonder console and this latest gadget doesn’t improve things at all. Apparently, the new Wii Fit Plus update includes a new game, called Bird’s-Eye Bull’s-Eye, where you have to flap your arms as fast as possible, while keeping your balance on the balance board, in order to guide a chicken to a series of targets, to collect points.

Now that’s embarrassing enough, unless you’re a toddler, but the guys at CDA Digital thought they’d make things better if they launched a pair of strap-on nylon wings to “add a sensation that you will not be mimicking a flying chicken with your hands alone.” Oh yeah, great thinking guys.
